Disposable Film Festival 2014 to Kick Off at Historic Castro Theater

The Disposable Film Festival, one of Moviemaker Magazine’s “coolest film festivals“, will be held from March 20-March 23, 2014 in San Francisco. Now in its seventh year, the iconic festival celebrates the artistic potential of disposable video: short films made on non-professional devices such as one-time use video cameras, cell phones, point and shoot cameras, webcams, computer screen capture software, and other readily available video capture devices.
